I found an engraved gun stock photo online long ago (before I had the glowforge) then grabbed one section out of it, turned it black and white and upped the contrast a lot and dropped shadows in photoshop then just duplicated the pattern and spinned it to get a mirrored effect.
Why would you ruin a picture of your work by putting a hi-point in there?
Very nice work on the holster! I want to get to the point of doing some of that style work on holsters as well, just been distracted with other hobbies lately. The one holster I did was the below, for my Polish VIS 35. It looks really small for the pistol but the pattern is supposed to be for a 1911. It has really good retention and wears quite well. Size wise I think it would be a better option for my p64. I’ve got another one in the works that covers the muzzle as well as coming up to the grips a bit more. If I can put down my other hobbies for a bit, I might have it done by Christmas time
Its one I got for $50 and it didn’t have a holster lol
They’re just so damn ugly. I also like how they decided to put a raised screw right in the finger groove. For $50, I’d take one.
Looks nice. I was just going to put a slit in the back of mine for the buckle to go though but I am glad that I went with the loop back. With the loop back the gun stays perfectly straight with my side instead of leaning slightly inwards where I have to fight it to get it out because of my “round” physique LOL
Oh also if you haven’t seen this type of leather engrave before it looks really awesome before wiping down during the engrave. I posted a short clip of a few seconds of it engraving on my page fb.me/freshstartcustoms if you want to check it out
Great work & congrats on making such a nice piece for your first project!
Working with leather can get quite addicting, enjoy!
